Celebrate Life with Travel

#CelebrateLifeAtIvy by owning a dream home atIvy estate, an 85 acre estate with 34 acres of greenery and open spaces. Join the 1600 happy families already living here. Check out this walkthrough video and decide for yourself.

What makes you love life and wake up in the morning and look forward to the day? Sometimes it's families, most of the times it the giggle of your toddler and the unexpected hugs from your partner. But living in the army, we get a good quota of holidays and the time we are not travelling, we plan about travelling and this gives us the greatest pleasure. Exploring places and being a part of a history, is how I celebrate my life. Being an army wife is not exactly living in the lap of luxury and this is more the reason why we are the way we are. Hungry for adventure and hungry for a new place every time.

The last time we traveled to Kerala, Uttar pradesh and Rajhasthan has been a roller coaster ride. And this was all in a space of a few days. I always think that it would be impossible to travel with a 3 year old active toddler but it somehow works out magically. When you have the determination and enthusiasm to do what you want to do then nothing can really deter you. And that's what makes me happy. I don't let things like that bother me and I believe that being comfortable with your life makes everyone around you relax. The long road trips, those late night stops at dhabas in Agra to have aloo paranthas, the tall cool glass of sugarcane in Ajmer and the hot paneer bread pakodas at Kurja,  having pani puri at Bapu Bazaar, Jaipur are far more priceless than just having a five star meal at a place you always lived and never want to move. I crave to go on a trek someday but I need to be fitter than what I am. And I am working towards a healthier lifestyle along with some inspirational travel. 

Coming home to memories and a memory card full of amazing pictures will last longer than you. And not just for posting pictures on social media, but travel because you have to, because it will make your life feel blessed and because you will just love your life more every day. 

My thirst for travel will never end and it's not only the world but also the smaller places in India that needs all the attention possible. You cannot forget visiting those old monuments and see from the eyes of another. Hire a guide and don't save money for a rainy day. Money will always come, but these experience just makes you feel energetic. 

It's time for me to travel again and I can't wait to make new plans.
